According to a lot of Gamers SimCity has been desperately in need of quite a few AI and bug fixes and it looks like the development team at Maxis are responding to that. EA and Maxis are launching version 2.0 of the game which promises to bring a huge number of fixes and gameplay changes to SimCity.
Gamers will find access to new cards and helicopters within the game as well as more ways to view relevant data linked to the cities that Gamers have created. In colour blind mode the HUD (Heads Up Display) now colour corrects itself properly.
The list of fixes is huge and we won’t list them all as you can find the full list here. However, some of the notable fixes include school buses no longer get stuck, tourism is no longer random and explainable and the looping issue on public transport has been fixed.
The Maxis team commented about the update:
“we wanted to inform you in advance that we’ll be taking down all servers for a few hours while these changes are being issued. Choosing a time to issue a major Update is never easy, but after looking our peak player time, we’ve concluded 1pm PST is the best window for us to make these improvements.”
The Update 2.0 has been promised since SimCity launched so hopefully this fix will make the game a lot more playable and make Gamers happy.
What are your thoughts on Maxis finally releasing update 2.0 for SimCity?
